Monte Williams, a writer who was incarcerated in 1997 for violating the terms of his probation, has completed his new book “In Between the Dark and the Light: A Prisoner's Account”: the real-life chronicles of the author’s prison sentence in a time when the employees of the facility seemed to view their roles as agents of retaliation for a murder of one of their own.

Concerned that the treatment that he and his fellow prisoners were experiencing was far from usual, Williams became determined to make sure that their story was told. “I meticulously chronicled the daily events for the next nine months and arranged for chapters of the manuscript to be smuggled out of the prison.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Monte Williams’s shocking tale escorts readers behind the locked and guarded doors of Bayside State Prison, a regrettable home to many of New Jersey’s most dangerous criminals.

Williams began his prison term at an unfortunate time in the facility’s history. Six days after he moved in, a senior corrections officer was brutally attacked and murdered while on the job. This seemingly tainted the perspective that the remaining officers and guards had of their charges as they began to perform their duties in ways that were abusive to the mind and spirit.

This eloquent and revealing piece of literature is not just an insider’s perspective of prison, it is a story of survival, raw emotion, and redemption.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “In Between the Dark and the Light: A Prisoner's Account” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
